MUMBAI: Domestic benchmark stock Indices — Sensex and Nifty — started Tuesday’s trade largely on a steady note.
At 9.32 am, the indices traded just 0.1 per cent higher. Of the Nifty 50 stocks, 36 advanced and the rest 14 declined.

“But long-term investors can utilise the weakness in the market to buy high-quality stocks in performing sectors. Autos is a segment to watch since this segment is coming out of a five-year downturn and its prospects look good, particularly in the premium segment,” said VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
Meanwhile, Asia-Pacific markets fell on Tuesday as investors await factory activity by regional private surveys, said Devarsh Vakil, Deputy Head of Retail Research, HDFC securities. (ANI)
